Camille Walala

Renowned artist and designer Camille Walala coordinates her global roster of creative projects from her studio in Hackney, London, which she set up in 2009. Walala is on a mission to disseminate joy through colour and pattern, and her projects range from art direction and interior design to civic art and installations. She is inspired by community, collaboration and her own unlikely career path, which has taken her from textile design to huge public artworks (starting with Old Street's Dream Come True building, which thrust her into the spotlight in 2015). Walala’s bright, playful designs demonstrate the power that colour and pattern have in placemaking, transforming urban spaces and having a profound emotive impact on those occupying them.
